Warren “Smokey” Thomas, Curiously Named President of OPSEU
I wrote about OPSEU local 330’s labour dispute a few weeks ago, and how they were suggesting the use of riot gear against autistic children. Honestly, this was one of the most disturbing stories about the labour movement I’ve heard of in years. Well, it seems the problem is now getting worse…

Anthony Haines, CEO of Toronto Hydro…
Dear Mr Haines,
I was walking home today when I saw a couple of highly disturbing billboards in front of my local supermarket. Some people may see them as witty- that said, many people will not…
Warren "Smokey" Thomas - President of the Ontario Public Service Employees Union
The Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU) has backed Education Assistants using martial arts blocker shields to control their autistic students. Seriously folks, this is probably the most disturbing story I’ve heard all year!

I believe it is coming to the time when Occupy Toronto need to re-think their OccuPod strategy. Because, this incident did very little good for their image…

One of the problems with Canada’s radical left is their tendency to make heroes out of dirty thugs. Alex Hundert is probably the best example of this madness- let me share his story with you…

One of the yurts that was 'donated' by OPSEU
I remember reading about Occupy Toronto’s yurts back when they were “donated” last year. One part of me was envious- where were Occupy Vancouver’s yurts! That said, it made sense to donate them to Occupy Toronto, as they definitely needed it for the city’s colder weather!

It all began on Friday afternoon when officers from the Toronto Police Department came to Occupy Toronto’s new occupation at Osgoode Hall. They told the occupiers that they must leave their space, despite the fact we had explicit permission from the property manager to stay there.
In the aftermath, four occupiers were arrested- two of them ended up being hospitalized due to the unnecessary violence of the arresting officers…

I’m unsure about the intentions of the person who made this video- so, this is not an endorsement. But, we are a healthier society if we can occasionally laugh at ourselves- and, I figured a lot of you would like to see this. So, enjoy!

Black Bloc member Alex Hundert & Jessica Enyar blocking me from my beer and from accessing the Occupy Toronto General Assembly
I learned yesterday that defamation is a criminal offence in Canada- meaning, that one doesn’t have to be able to afford a lawyer to defend themselves from what Krystalline Kraus (Krystal Ann Kraus). This is good news indeed- and shows that Canada is still a just country in some ways…
It was challenging at first. I walked-in with two requests, the first was to take care of the criminal assault by Alex Hundert, and the second was to press the defamation charges against KAK. As you, my readers, already know- the story is long and complex.

Fast-forward to 7:55 in this video and you will see that Judy Rebick supports the man who assaulted me last night! She also supports Krystalline Kraus, the woman who lied about me last night!

But The Steelworkers Support Sustaining it!
When the original holders of the Infinity Rubber factory went bankrupt, a new buyer took it over at a significantly discounted price. The new owner financed their payment through a rather predatory loan.The rate for this loan was set at 18%- usury!

I got the most lovely letter today from Rob Chamberland, president of CUPE Local 2073. It sounds like he is angry and vindictive- could it be having to repeat “oh ye brothers and sisters” too often each day, or is there something more to the story?
Here’s the letter, filled with all of the exaggeration and anger you’d expect from a labour executive- followed with my response: (click the image to expand)
